Notes

COLUMBIA RECORD - GRAND PRIZES: PARIS 1900, ST. LOUIS 1904 and MILAN 1906.
I transferred this record into my computer on Saturday, February 20, 2010 and uploaded it today on Sunday, February 21, 2010.
This acoustically recorded record plays very well considering it's age of being 95 Years old!
I used Magix Audio Cleaner to clean up the recording. It does have some bad
surface noise at the beginning of the record, but it eventually goes away.
I transferred this from my record player at 78 RPM, but didn't change the speed
cause it sounded OK at that speed so I left it at 78 RPM. I just found out that these early Columbia 12 inch records were cut at 80 RPM. 78 RPM is slightly too slow, but 2 revolutions really doesn't make that much difference. The next Columbia record will be at the proper speed.
Typically before 1925 different speeds were used depending on the length of the song and the size of the record not the size of the groove which I once read and that is incorrect. If it were the size of the groove in the length of the song that would mean different size stylus or steel needles to fit that particular groove and that just doesn't make any since at all. Changing speed make more since! It's just commonsense!
It says on the label that this is Dance Music and the original price is $1.00 in the U.S. and Price in Canada, $1.25.
Also, If you listen very carefully you can hear someone in the band hit a sour note at the time 2:17 to 2:18. It's not hard to miss!
Please let me know what you think in the reviews. Thanks!

Subject: Nothing like a 78!
Thanks! I needed something for a video. This has just the right quality - jaunty, but potentially mocking? The right length, too. We'll see if the youtube robots try to claim it.

I wonder how many cds we'll be listening to in a hundred years? Or will no one be listening at all?
